Paris Hilton wore a pink, white, and blue racing suit as she watched a member of her MotoGP team win the Valencia Grand Prix in Spain on Sunday.
She celebrated on the sidelines and on the podium after Maverick Vinales, a rider for SuperMartxe VIP by Paris Hilton, took first place at the MotoGP championship final.
While watching her newest business venture succeed, she also honored Italian motorcycle racer Marco Simoncelli, who tragically died in a racing accident last month. Paris proudly wore his number and tweeted:
"In honor of The #MotoGP Legend Marco Simoncelli, I am wearing his #58. You are in all our hearts & minds."
Check out more pics of Paris posing alongside championship racer Stefan Bradl and holding her team's trophy below!
Congrats on the victory, gurl!

Prince Harry attended last Sunday's British Formula 1 Grand Prix at England's Silverstone Circuit where he was on hand to present the trophy to the winner of the racing event, Fernando Alonso.
Second and third place winners, Sebastian Vettel (above) and Mark Webber, were also honored with a congratulatory handshake from the handsome prince.
However, if Harry had it his way he would have been congratulating McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, both of whom he was rooting for before the start of the race, saying:
“I’ll be cheering on Jenson and Lewis, big time. Obviously weather is playing a big part, as it always does at Silverstone. I’m hoping for rain, just because I think it will be better for McLaren, but we will have to wait and see.”
Check out more pics of Harry at the event below mingling with racing royalty like former former Formula 1 World Champion Nigel Mansell.

We have no idea why, but Paris Hilton stopped by the Catalunya MotoGP Grand Prix in Montmelo, near Barcelona yesterday and posed for some pictures.
We guess it doesn’t really matter why she’s there, the point is that she looks smokin’ in that racing outfit!
Nascar = Rednecks. Grand Prix = SEKSI!

Long Beach got celebrified on Saturday when the celebs came out for the Toyota Grand Prix Pro Celebrity Race.
Everyone from Frankie Muniz to Djimon Hounsou showed up.
Even though Frankie looks super strapping in that uniform, it’s hard to imagine him driving a race car!

Actor during the week and road warrior on the weekend, Patrick Dempsey competed in the Miami Grand Prix at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida on Saturday.
It was a busy day for McDreamy who signed autographs and answered questions from racing fans, then geared up for the big race himself!
Dempsey Racing, of which Patrick pulls double duty as owner and lead driver, got off to a good start, but unfortunately the engine in his Mazda RX-8 GT overheated and put an end to the teams 2:45-minute timed sprint race.
Dempsey Racing did reach the podium in January's season-opening Rolex 24, where he and his teammates placed in 3rd, their best yet!
Sounds like Patrick is a rising star on the race track. We wish the best of luck to Dempsey Racing as they continue the rest of their season.
Check out more pics of Patrick and his race car at the event below.
